text: Chinyang. The original Ang clan of Wakching was Ang-moi (Angniak). Shayonghu, Khoknokhu, and Yinyonghu and Nokanokphong came from Morochong, Yanahu came from Mahan, a village near Tanyeang. Chinyang says that no whole clan came from Yinyushang and Chongwe, but only some individuals who mixed with other clans.
